That is where I found it...I had an electronic copy saved on my computer. I just couldn't think of a witty way to say I had found it there without making you look stupid.

Per my '09 Owner's Manual (and I realize they DO make running engineering changes not reflected at the time of printing), wheel nut torque specs are: 140 lb ft lbs or Metric 190 N*m.

Here's the page in my book.

Alldatadiy.com is incorrect. My owner's manual also states 140ftlb. Thanks for the info.

Default Re: Torque Specs for Wheel Lugs

This thread has become confusing. To clarify the torque for the S-Series, I did my own research, The index of the owners manual in my 1994 SL2 refers the reader to page 234 to find the "Wheel Nut Torque" value. Page 234 says "The torque wrench setting should be 140Newton-meters
(103 ft-lbs)." That makes sense; else, how would anyone but a wieght-lifter change a flat tire on the road.

You should realize that you are looking at a 2 1/2 year old thread for the Saturn OUTLOOK. Not the Saturn S-series.
So the 140 FT LB is correct for the Outlook and the 103 FT LB is correct for the S-series.

Idea Re: Torque Specs for Wheel Lugs

'...That makes sense; else, how would anyone but a wieght-lifter change a flat tire on the road...."

CAA membership and let them crack them !

Or as I carry in my vehicle torque wrench to chk torque if any repairs done requiring the techs to remove tires and also a cheater bar (?) in back to use over the star wrench that the Saturn dealer had inserted into the floor tray upon sale !

btw I really detest (sp?) the oem wrench that GM installed as part of the jack package. It would take forever raising or lowering the vehicle using it !! So also have a 3/4" drive socket wrench and applicable sockets in the side storage (well) compartment, to do any requisite jobs on the wheel lugs at home or while on a road trip.

imho
